Not So Fast, New York
Above: The Best Reuben Sandwiches
I saw this story in the New York Times today. Being a foodie and a history buff, I just had to read it! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
The grilled Reuben is the epitome of a New York deli sandwich, but even The New York Times reports that the Reuben was created in the 1920s at the Blackstone Hotel in Omaha, Nebraska, when a local grocer, Reuben Kulakofsky, concocted it for his poker buddies, then convinced the hotel owner to put it on the menu. A waitress there won a national contest with the sandwich in the 1950s and it soon swept the country.
